Power steering pump

Recommended Posts

I wonder if a car power steering pump would work for a hydro lift conversion. I have a pump but need a tank. This would kill two birds with one stone. My 7014s has a small gear starter so I have plenty of room to drive pump where start/gen. would be.

Besides being a bit overkill, this should work fine. I used a G.M. P.S. pump on an old jeep of mine for the snowblade hydraulics and it worked wonderful. The only stumbling block I can forsee is a fitting for the pressure port of the pump. Most of them are inverted flare or some other odd thing.

I have a friend who has two tractors that he built totally from scratch. He uses power steering pumps to power the hydraulics on both of them. They usually pump 1.5 to 2 gal/min and have a 1500 psi bypass built in.

If you go to the junkyard you will find today most front wheel drive cars use a very small pump with a remote fill tank.The pump should be easy to mount on a horizontal engine and place the tank anywhere space will permit.

Only problem I see is has a serpinteen belt not a standard pulley/belt, but the price is right, free. After i bought the frunt differntial to fix mine. Now I need a controll valve and I'm set. Any helper out there?

My son has an 84 Mustang with serpentine belt. Whenever we get an alternator or power steering pump, we always have to change the pulleys, because they come with v-belt pulleys. Should be plenty of v-belt pulleys at junk yards. You may also check at an auto parts store - sometimes they have an extra lying around. They normally swap the pulleys for you if the one they sell you has a different pulley than the one you took off. Been there, done that several times.
